Jim Greiner, a longtime SABIAN endorser/clinician, was recently honored by winning a Gail Rich – Santa Cruz County, CA Artist of the Year Award. This award, named after a woman who was an important sponsor of the arts in Santa Cruz, is given to several artists each year to recognize “select individuals who inspire our diverse and culturally-rich community.” The Award is sponsored by the Santa Cruz Sentinal newspaper, and the Cultural Council of Santa Cruz County.
Jim accepted the award with a talk about the importance of “creatively participating in our communities”, customized for this event from his interactive keynote presentation entitled, “Rhythms Of Community Spirit”. He has given this presentation to corporate groups, conferences, communities and schools worldwide.
At the end of the evening, Jim also conducted a brief rhythmic, audience-participation activity to close the proceedings on an upbeat note!
Through his company Hands-On! Drumming® Events (www.handsondrum.com), Jim conducts interactive rhythm programs worldwide for corporate team building, conference and meeting ice breaking, community groups, schools and private celebrations of all types.
